This kind of music never gets old when you’re studying. Kaleo is such an incredible composer. I love all of his music.

This is such a peaceful and motion inspiring piece of music.

This is a great ballet work out for anyone that wants a ballerina body ;)

Go to sleep with compassion for yourself, body and soul, and wake up with a warm intention for tomorrow, begin your day with a mental hug and continue patting your back as you walk through your first day starting a new era of self-importance.

I leave you this evening with this challenge.

Thank you and have a beautiful evening.

This one feels good for just after first breathing meditation for warming up the body and getting it ready for your practice for the day.

This instruction is good for waking up or cooling down in peaceful meditation and contemplation just before bed. It is calm and slow, peaceful and encouraging.

Whole body yoga routine, let’s get back to self improvement and appreciation shall we?

I’ve taken a break, not a beneficial one, and now I have returned, this time I am working on self appreciation, acceptance, and worth

Beauty Sleep is No Laughing Matter.
What can sleep really do for your body? For starters, it can affect the hormone levels that control appetite if you get less than the recommended 7-9 hours. This is directly related to weight. Lack of sleep increases your body’s stress levels, which increases blood pressure. Getting good sleep reduces your body’s stress, which also reduces inflammation of your body which is thought to be one contributing factor to deterioration as the body ages. Sleep can help improve memory, and potentially prevent cancer. Get your sun today so you can sleep tonight and be ready for tomorrow. Sweet dreams everyone, here’s more info: http://longevity.about.com/od/lifelongenergy/tp/healthy_sleep.htm

Sunshine for the Body:
The sun should be a part of your daily diet. Sunshine is a natural mood enhancer, getting a good dose of vitamin D can help alleviate symptoms of depression* and make you feel happy. Vitamin D is also directly related to certain forms of cancer. A defficiency in the nutrient can increase chances of getting these cancers, and perhaps even contribute to the strength of the cancer cells. Getting enough vitamin D from the sun can aide in fighting or preventing the risk of cancer. Even your skin benefits from sunshine as it acts as a natural anticeptic for your skin. This can decrease the acne, eczema, and psoriasis. The sun, when taken in moderate doses each day* can help prevent the development of skin cancer, because as your body produces more melatonin it becomes more resistant to the harmful rays of sunshine, while it soaks in the good ones. Seeing the sun can help regulate our body clock, making it easier for us to fall asleep, in turn we benefit from the effects of good sleep. Get out today for five or ten minutes just to sip some green tea in the sunshine :) Here’s some more info: http://www.energize.com/the-health-benefits-of-sunshine/

This is a great relaxation video. Very zen and calm. I just did it and I feel ready for the day today. After a hectic unforgiving day yesterday, I feel like my body is relaxed and replenished.

As we learned earlier, the Avocado is a Super Food. Guacamole is so easy to make and it’s a great way to get some avocado in you and keep you from eating another lesser snack to cure mid-day-munchies. Half one avocado, take out the seed and remove the green meat from the skin and put it in a bowl. Chop a half tomato, and three cloves fresh, crushed garlic. Mush the avocado until it is a thick paste, stir in tomato, garlic, and squeeze one whole lime into the mixture. Mix thoroughly. This can be your base guacamole. Feel free to add corn, black beans, almonds(for crunch), and any other seasoning you think could taste good. Make it a super food day :) Enjoy.

Tilapia Recipe Idea:
Rinse the Tilapia and pat dry. Squease half a lime on each fillet, rub with minced garlic and sprinkle on a dash of cumin, chili powder, and crack some black pepper on top of everthing. Cook in a tiny bit of oil (your choice of almond/olive/coconut). Serve with spinache or broccoli and corn/potatoes/squash. Enjoy, reblog and tell me how it turned out.
